Gerald and Thu – 2017 Scholarship Recipients


[♫] -Hi, my name is Thu Tieu and I want to be
in Environmental Engineering. -Hi, my name is Gerald Santiano and I’m going
for Electrical Engineering. -We have been lab partners since last fall
when we were in Physics 114. So then we decided, Gerald, next quarter, I’m
gonna take this physics–will you take with me? -It’s always easier to have someone you know in class.
-Yeah, right. -To get you through as you progress, you know? Starting from the 200 series, it’s all investigating
and learning the theory behind forces, magnetism, electrons, and stuff. -So the lab is like, to prove that all the
stuff we’re studying in class is true. -It’s not magic.
-Yeah, it’s not magic. -It’s actually real science. [laughs] -Before I get the scholarship, I just kind
of almost want to give up my study, because I have a full time job, and then full-time school. I very appreciate the donor to give me that
chance to continue on my career. -Both Thu and I are here from like 8:00 a.m.
to 6:00 at night every day so, you know, the scholarship means a lot. It makes me feel better about myself that
people are recognizing that we are trying to do something for ourselves and people want
to help us out. It’s just like–It’s just a good feeling all around. [♫]
